This summer, a tremendous effort from our team has resulted in a massive $1,000 being raised for cancer treatment for one of our representatives from the Baltimore office. This kind of teamwork and kindness is what has become expected in our Fast Trak, Inc. offices, and we’re proud to be able to do what we can for the community and fellow team members.
If you are inspired to encourage your business to give back as well, then we’ve got several ideas to help guide you on your quest to help people. The first thing you and your business colleagues need to do is establish a cause that you believe in. Perhaps you will want to choose a local cause, or perhaps a cause that affects a fellow team member. For Fast Trak, Inc. this has meant involvement in the fight against cancer following the diagnosis of one of our colleagues with the disease.
The next thing to do is decide how much you can afford to give, or in fact, if you have time free that you can use to volunteer for a cause. If you and your team can set aside some of your time to help out a local cause, then often that can be just as valuable as providing them with money.
Following that, you could organize something at work that involves everybody. Perhaps a bake sale would be a good idea, or a collection of unwanted clothes and goods for a local goodwill charity. There are so many things you can do as a team, as an individual and as colleagues for your local community. Be sure to use your local notoriety as a tool to help the community around you!
